Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished:
If you're alive, it isn't.
--- Richard Bach

I have come to realize more and more that the greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for, to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody [to no one]
--Mother Teresa

We were not separated at your birth.
It was the moment at which we began our journey toward each other

Still in Bangkok, Headed to Hanoi in few hours

We are still in bangkok for about 2 more hours. It is 3:30 Am but I can not sleep because I am so nauseous. Stomach is a bit better but not 100%. I have such a sensitive stomach I knew this would happen but I expected to at least make it off the airplane before it started.

Today in Bangkok was nice. We hired a tour guide for a 3 hour tour of the Buddhist temples . In Indonesia 95% of population is Buddhist. We saw a huge cement Buddha that was moved from the mountains and during transportation cement was cracked and they found solid gold Buddha inside.We also saw the largest reclining Buddha. It was inside 7 huge pagodas all put together. I could barely get a picture of the entire thing. Thailand people are so nice. They want to know why we do not adopt baby boy from Thailand. I said maybe we come back in a few years. "Nancy" our tour guide kept trying to get me to rub a fertility symbol. She thought we were adopting because we could not conceive. I kept telling her NO we choose to adopt. She did not understand why we would adopt 2 babies if we could conceive. I finally told her No we adopt lots of babies but no more birthing babies for me. She kept insisting but I would not touch that symbol. I said NO WAY. So many children in this world need homes no need for me to conceive more.

My Husband had a double breasted suit,6 shirts hand, and 2 ties made by a tailor. It was really cool. You would never get that kind of service in America. They were measuring him then 10 hours later the Suit and shirts are ready to go. Beautiful workmanship. He got to pick the material and colors. Fits like a glove. Only $411. I figured we did not pay the extra $1000 to upgrade airplane seats so we deserved to spend it. I wonder what I will get with the extra $$$????

We are on to Hanoi in a few hours. We have just got confirmation G&R will be Oct 31st not the 29th like I was originally told. 2 more extra days of waiting before I see their sweet faces. I can barely stand the wait. We did not get either of the Hotels we wanted. I am really bummed about this. Hopefully something will open up.

All these changes to the I-600 have me worried. WC says don't worry they will not effect us but I am not so sure. We will not beat the Oct 26th deadline. I heard a lot of agencies had stopped sending clients until further notice so I questioned WC before we left but they said everything was pretty much rumor and they had not been advised to stop sending clients. I hope this turns out to be the right choice on WC part.

Next time you hear from me I will be in Hanoi. This is so unbelievable. I do not think I will truly believe it is going to happen until I have them in my arms. I hope the next 4 days fly by.
